    Every once In a while I see apps get removed for a couple of days while they update... usually when they show up again they are much better.

    Rhampton,

    We have not removed Voice Dialer HF from the Market. I just confirmed it is still visible from a Verizon Droid phone and that we have had several sales in the last hour.

    VDHF is a paid ($4) app. Are you able to see other non-free apps?

    I can see hundreds of of other paid apps under top paid, but if I do a search for voice dialer hf - no matches found. if I do a search for voice dialer, I get 9 results, 5 free and and 4 with prices. Thanks

    Voice Dialer HF missing from Market?

    Well we don't like to hear that! When I search Market on the phone:

    • "vdhf" - only hit
    • "voice dialer" - top hit
    • "hands free" - top hit
    • "dialer" - #4
    • "voice" - #16
    Regards,
    DFXmobile

    From my droid phone, I just did a phone data reset hoping to clear a bad market index file. didn't help. When I go to the market and do a search, I get the message "There are no matches in Android Market for the search:voice dialer hf". Can't figure this one out.

    I get no hit on voice dialer hf, no hit on VDHF, plenty of hits on voice, dialer, hands free

    Weird, I just went to the main page of The Market APP (not browser) and searched "Voice Dialer" and it was at the top of the list.

    It would be interesting to see if it comes up on another Droid.

    It is possible that the reason it shows up on ours is becasue we have it installed??

    I would uninstall and see if it shows up but I am too chicken that it won't and I would not have one fo my favorite programs!

    Let us know what you find out.

    I just wanted to chime in that i have seen this with other applications also. programs I could once see on my Droid, that since I was issued a new Droid by Verizon, I can no longer see. These included some free and some paid. There is something amiss here, and hopefully Google will figure it out sooner than later

    Rhampton and I caught up offline. He went to a couple stores and checked out many phones. All newly-activated phones are seeing only 9 (in his area of Ohio). Update: Those newly-activated phones were tested by a salesman with his (previously activated) account.

    If any others are seeing only 9 results when searching for "voice dial" on the phone in the Market app, could you please let us know ? (be sure to search without the quotes)

    Also, if you have had a hardware swap (Droid replacement), please let us know either way.

    Update1: If you have ever swapped out your Droid hardware, please try the above test and let us know! See post 19 for more info.

    Update2: We now know, thanks to an impressively incendiary, highly effective thread, that not all Droid hardware swaps result in this problem. We would still like to understand who does and does not see this, so please post your results if you have had a hardware swap!

    Thanks,
    DFXmobile

    On that note, the default voice dialer is crapola!

    "if" it works, it won't acknowledge which number is default so it likes to dial the wrong number that I have assigned to a contact.

    Which is the recommendation consensus?

    We may have a partial handle on what has happened. It looks like some phones cannot see any apps (paid or free) that use Google's copy protection feature.

    The question of why these phones cannot see protected apps is still open. Relevant threads here and here. It may be related to hardware swaps.

    Update: Rhampton confirms he had a hardware swap early on. So did the Droid owner that alerted us in the Google Market posting, DigiK. I am going to edit the earlier request to ask that those that have swapped Droid hardware to give it a try.

    Thanks to all that helped out so far...

    This is your original Droid. You have not swapped your unit?
